Naomi Watts To Play Princess Diana In ‘Caught In Flight’

Nothing says a director is growing quite like jumping from a Hitler biopic to a biography of one of the most beloved princesses the world has ever known.

That’s the trajectory for Downfall director Oliver Hirschbiegel, as he begins to prepare his upcoming Princess Diana biopic, Caught In Flight, now with a brand new actress. Deadline reports that Naomi Watts will be starring in the film, replacing Jessica Chastain. The film is currently being sold at the Berlinale, so more news on this project should be coming fast.

The picture will look at Diana’s affair with a heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan, and if it is half the film that Downfall was, then guys, we are in for one hell of a film. Flight is penned by Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine), so there is a lot of talent behind the script here, and with filming set to start sometime later this year, it won’t be too long before we get our eyes on this sucker. And frankly, this writer can’t wait.
